Elephant Anthrax in Bangladesh Spurs FBI into Action

Deadly anthrax has killed one elephant and might have infected more in southeastern Bangladesh, veterinarians said Friday. (Story)

In typical unrelated response to any news involving anthrax, the US FBI has rounded up ex-military researcher, Dr. Steven Hatfill, to be certain there is no connection.

Attorney General John Ashcroft didn't go so far as to call Hatfill a suspect, or even a "person of interest," but instead described Hatfill as, "a pain in my political butt who's suing me and so he gets to be high on my list of people to interrogate." FBI investigators dispute claims that they are planning to question Hatfill at an undisclosed location near Baghdad, Iraq.

Can you believe it? Just imagine, 5,500 sq miles of forested hills, home to over 400 elephants. With the FBI on the case we should be looking for evidence of "Agent Orange" contamination of the wildlife and local residents. How else will Ashcroft be able to clear the forests so the FBI can find and interview the elephants? One of the elephants had to have seen something!
